International Day of People with Disability 2018 promotes empowerment, inclusiveness and equality
NDS wishes all of our members a Happy International Day of People with Disability.
International Day of People with Disability (IDPwD), a United Nations sanctioned event, aims to promote the rights and wellbeing and increase awareness of people with disability across all spheres of society. The Australian government has supported IDPwD since 1996.
This year’s theme is ‘Empowering persons with disabilities and ensuring inclusiveness and equality’. It is designed to focus on empowering people with disability for inclusive, equitable and sustainable development, reflecting the organisation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and pledge to leave no one behind.
NDS is proud to support people with disability across Australia. This year we are celebrating the day with the launch of a new video, which features a few members of our staff - who are doing great work supporting our members and the disability sector - talking about their job, what they love about having a disability and what they are looking forward to in 2019.
NDS in WA is celebrating IDPwD with its annual flagship lunch – hosting more than 500 people from across the disability, private, corporate and government sectors.
